Sitges, continued

One of my favorites in Sitges: Elly Sienkiewicz.
I like her appliques so much.
There were beautiful Baltimore albums to look at.
I'm fascinated by some Baltimore albums, because I like appliqué, and also because they tell a story.
The quilts by Elly Sienkiewicz have even more dimensions. They are all beautifully made.
Great work!
You can see more here. And do browse YouTube for some videos.

And a nice surprise: Ferret.
I was very impressed when I entered the room where she was showing her works. They are powerful.
A lot of work goes in them, they are big, and also beautifully made.
And she is very nice, and a bit "out of the norm". You don't expect a gothic looking lady making quilts, don't you? Nor a Rockstar turned into quilt?
